Korea Remains Could Be Army Troops Who Fell at 'Frozen Chosin'

Korea Remains Could Be Army Troops Who Fell at 'Frozen Chosin'

Trump's Twitter post on Thursday thanked Kim for returning the remains of some American war dead from the 1950-1953 Korean War.

Vice President Pence said on Wednesday during a ceremony in Hawaii that the return of the remains is a sign of "tangible progress in our efforts to achieve peace on the Korean Peninsula".

The latest letter from Kim arrived on the heels of concerns over North Korea's ballistic missile program and commitment to denuclearization.

Byrd cautioned that. "at this point, at least, there's no way to tell" how many more sets of remains the North Koreans might already have in their possession. It was the first repatriation of remains since 2005.

The pledge to return the remains of USA soldiers was made during a landmark summit between Trump and Kim in June in Singapore, where North Korea committed to work toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

"Everything we saw was consistent with these remains, indeed, being from the Korean War, and consistent with these remains being good candidates to be missing Americans from the Korean War", said Byrd. "We couldn't be sure how many individuals were in each box".

More than 5,300 USA troops are still missing in North Korea.

He said numerous recovered remains likely belonged to U.S. Army soldiers who fought in the November, 1950 Battle of Chosin Reservoir - 1,024 Americans are still missing from that battle.

The Hawaii military laboratory that analyzes and identifies the remains is planning to double the number of people working on its Korean War team to 10 from five as a result of this week's influx, chief scientist John Byrd said, noting that the process of DNA sampling would begin immediately. He said numerous remains appear to have come from a village associated with the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, a harrowing fight against Chinese forces in late 1950 that claimed thousands of American lives.

In addition, the 55 transfer cases handed over by the North Koreans contained equipment associated with the American military, such as boots, canteens, buttons and buckles, Byrd said.

"They had been very carefully packaged with padding and packaging that was done to, I think, a very high standard", he said.

Investigators will also use dental records and chest x-rays to further analyze the remains for a possible identification.
